Be Still...

January 28, 2011


Over the last two weeks both my children have had an incredibly stubborn stomach bug that has been going around. On and off they have been home from school with me. Have to say, the first couple days were alright, it was good to catch up on laundry and just have to sit and wipe forheads, give meds and serve liquids..but by the fourth day and now almost two weeks later it has made me realize something. I am not good at "sitting still". I am not ADD or anything, just don't like the feeling of being "unproductive".. in my own mind.
I like to feel like I am in motion constantly. I am one of those people who HATES to take naps and has a list going in the morning of things to accomplish. Well, when you are at the beck and call of a five and seven year old it makes it pretty hard to cross anything off that list.
I began to pray last night at 4 in the morning when Gideon needed his lates dose of Motrin.. I asked God to just calm my spirit and let me be still. I instantly sensed as if he was like.. "is that what it takes? " I am convicted. I am acutly aware of the fact that I am a "doaholic" and my prayer today is that I can not "find time" to catch up or do "things" today.. but to rest in the arms of my Daddy God and be still.
